EDPMA Statement Re IDR Freeze After TMA IV Ruling

EDPMA Chair of the Board, Andrea Brault, MD MMM FACEP, released the following statement regarding the summary judgement-in-part issued in favor of the Texas Medical Association (TMA), et al., in “TMA IV” and CMS’ subsequent freeze of the IDR and patient dispute process:

“On three consecutive occasions, the courts have vacated regulatory decisions related to the implementation of the No Surprises Act that deviate from statute to favor insurers at the expense of clinicians,” said Dr. Brault. “We will continue to support initiatives that bring regulations in line with the statute, with an emphasis on protecting clinicians and their patients.” To read the full statement, click here.
